Day 17: The Coronavirus Countdown - 100 Days of Great Music

The artist P!nk has made a series of acclaimed albums since her 2000 debut, but most recently, she's been one of the artists recovering from the coronavirus.

The superstar revealed her positive diagnosis back on April 3 which also affected her 3-year-old son. Both mother and son have recovered, and like all the artists who have been hit by this mysterious bug, we wish them the best.

Our bonus pick of the day takes you back to 2001 for P!nk's "Missundaztood," her sophomore set that sold more than five million copies in the U.S. and 15 million worldwide.

The Rolling Stones

Forty Licks (2002)

Why I Love It

The Stones have some absolute classic albums, including Exile on Main Street, Sticky Fingers and Let it Bleed, but I felt like I need a massive greatest hits compilation to encapsulate their remarkable career. Making your way through these 40 songs is like listening to the soundtrack of rock and roll. The consistency this band maintained putting out quality music is astounding and, really, nearly on par with the Beatles.

Album Highlights

"You Can't Always Get What You Want," "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Honky Tonk Women"

Kendall on Chuck's Album of the Day

Chuck mentions some of the classic individual albums that you should explore, but for a career retrospective, it doesn't get much better than this. This covers a period when rock music was still rock and roll, and nobody did classic rock and roll better than the Stones.


Patsy Cline

The Patsy Cline Collection (1991)

Why I Love It

Patsy Cline's career was brief, and it came before albums were really the main vehicle for delivering music to country fans. She only released three albums before her untimely death in a plane crash in 1963 at the age of 30.

One of those - "Showcase" - is the definitive Patsy album of her lifetime released, ironically, in the aftermath of a near-fatal car crash. It produced the hits "I Fall To Pieces" and "Crazy," and it would serve as a nice introduction to her music.

But if any artist was ever deserving of the box set treatment, it is Patsy Cline. And the Patsy Cline Collection from 1991 is the definitive retrospective of her career containing virtually all of the studio recordings she ever made in chronological order. It'll take a little while to get through the 104 recordings here, but it's an exhilarating journey worth every minute.

Album Highlights

"Walkin' After Midnight," "I Fall To Pieces" and "Crazy"

Chuck on Kendall's Album of the Day

You get two greatest hits collections from us today. And this is a great one, too. Patsy Cline has one of the greatest voices in music history. This is a great way to remember her music or get acquainted with it.
